Deontay Wilder gatecrashes Tyson Fury weigh-in to trade insults with rival

Tyson Fury Anthony Joshua Deontay Wilder

Tyson Fury is back in action on Saturday night as he continues his comeback to boxing after almost three years away from the ring.

Following an earlier clash between the unbeaten American boxer and Tyson Fury's father, both Deontay Wilder and Tyson himself had to be separated.

Wilder shouted "Bomb Squad" as Fury took to the scales on Friday afternoon but Fury's father, John, took umbrage with the interruption and let "The Bronze Bomber" know all about it.

Wilder flew into Belfast from the USA in time to see Fury hit the scales at what he insists is his lightest weight since long before his shock world heavyweight title conquest of Wladimir Klitschko.

Tyson Fury is a 1/200 favourite to beat Pianeta on Saturday night, and victory should lead to the much-anticipated clash with Wilder later in the year.

Following initial attempts to shout each other down, the 54-year-old Fury aggressively approached Wilder before he was restrained by a security guard and his son's trainer Ben Davison, and further shouting continued.

Dr Bumbum, Brazil plastic surgeon, charged with murder
Prosecutors said Maria Fatima Barros presented herself as a doctor, but her medical licence to practice in Rio had been suspended. The lawyer for Dr Furtado said her client was innocent and had not turned himself in to police because he was in a panic.

A Las Vegas showdown in November/December has been mentioned.

That was significantly lighter than the 19st 10lbs he weighed for his comeback win over Sefer Seferi in June.

The bout is priced very similarly to a potential Anthony Joshua fight with Fury available at EVENS and Joshua at 4/5.

Having flown to Belfast from the United States, Wilder will be ringside for the fight, before potentially defending his title against Fury - providing the Brit defeats Pianeta.

An announcement could come as soon as that point, but if not, it is likely to be confirmed in the days following.
